L3540HDA

Premium ROPS Tractor

The Kubota L3540HDA tractor is best suited to the operator looking for a mid-sized tractor that offers premium performance, versatility and comfort. Powered by Kubota’s 35HP, 3 cylinder diesel engine and HST Plus transmission, the L3540HDA delivers high performance and professional results for tasks both small and large. Expect top of the line features, including Intelli-Panel, Kubota’s unique tractor monitoring system and luxury reclining seating for ease of operation and comfort during those long hours of operation. Available with a number of attachments, you will come to rely on the L3540HDA, boosting your versatility, efficiency and productivity.

Features

  • Kubota’s reputation for making exceptional engines has never been more evident than in the Grand L40. Kubota’s Three Vortex Combustion System (E-TVCS) allows for increased airflow into the combustion chamber, where it mixes quickly and evenly with fuel from the fuel injection nozzle to deliver exceptional power and efficiency.
  • HST Plus’s automated control of both the HST pump and drive motor gives you optimal performance, regardless of the task, working conditions or operator expertise.
  • The hydraulically activated live-independent PTO clutch allows both the rear and mid PTOs to be independently engaged/disengaged while the tractor is still in motion.
  • Featuring three speed ranges, the L3540 includes a steering column lever to shift between high and low speeds for each range, expanding your options to six total speeds. Once your preferred range shift speed is set, you can easily shift the H-DS between the high and low speeds while moving. With a simple touch of the mode selection button you can activate the auto H-DS for automatic Hi/Lo shifting.
  • This function links the HST pedal and the engine throttle, synchronizing tractor speed and engine revolution. This greatly simplifies tractor operation and helps reduce fuel consumption.
  • The HST response speed can be adjusted with a simple turn of a dial. If your task requires a quick response, you can turn the dial to the FAST setting. This setting is ideal for use during loader-related jobs. If the job at hand needs a more gradual response, as used for turf work, set the dial to SLOW. When your preferred response speed has been selected, you won’t need to make any more adjustments with the foot pedal. It’s that easy.

Attachments:

  • The versatile 72” mower features right-side discharge, adjustable cutting heights in 0.5” increments and is compatible with the front loader.

What type of tyre do I need?

Every hobby farm or commercial operation has different requirements and choosing the right wheel equipment is an important factor in selecting a suitable machine. In steep or muddy conditions a tractor will retain more performance if it can maintain grip so we would recommend bar or industrial wheels. If looking after your grass is important, than we recommend the turf tyres which will not dig up the wet ground.

What bucket do I need?

A 4in1 hydraulic release bucket vs a standard bucket

What is a 4in1 bucket? A 4in1 bucket is a hydraulic enabled bucket that can push material, scoop material, drag and grab material. The bucket is split along the backplate enabling it to open using hydraulic control systems.

What is a standard bucket? A standard bucket is a single piece bucket that has less functionality than a 4in1 bucket and its primary function is to scoop and smooth out material.

The 4 IN 1 bucket has many advantages over the standard bucket:

  • Using a hydraulic control lever, the operator can open the bucket to release material instead of dumping the material.
  • When the bucket is opened, the exposed blades on the rear and front end of the bucket can be used for earthmoving activities.
  • Similar functionality to a mechanical thumb on the BH77 or BH92 backhoe, where you can use the bucket to grab broken branches and foliage.
  • The 4in1 bucket is a more expensive option as it includes hydraulic fittings and hoses and also requires additional labour in the assembly process the plumb up the hydraulics. Whilst a 4in1 bucket will cost slightly more than a standard bucket, the small price increase is well worth the additional functionality and versatility that it gives your tractor. Without the 4in1 you will not be able to push, drag or grab material.
  • In the last decade, we have found that 58% of customers buy a 4in1 bucket for their L series tractor

Safe Loader Operation

It is strongly recommended for safety purposes that your tractor has a counterweight fitted to the rear linkage when you are operating the front end loader. If the weight in the loader and bucket is not offset using a backhoe, an implement such as a mulcher or slasher or a purpose built counterweight, then you can damage the tractor and have an accident, potentially harming you or others around you. If the weight on the front of the tractor is not countered using the above means then the tractor can tip over, the loader subframe can twist or the back wheels can come off the ground, in which case you loose traction and control of the machine.

There are limitations to the lift capacity of front end loaders. The listed capacity on the loader plate often does not include the weight of the bucket and you must understand the maximum safe lifting capacity before undertaking a task. If the task is too large you can try to break it up into smaller tasks, such as cutting a log up before lifting it.

It is important to consider the tasks that you have to do on your property, now and over the coming years as it may be beneficial for you to step up into a MX series or M7040SUHD tractor which have more horsepower and lift capacity.
